Myers Bed and Mattress product information

Myer's have the complete solution when it comes to beds. Whether you want traditional open coil sprung mattresses or the latest Visco-elastic Memory Foam you will find your perfect bed here.

Backcare beds

These springs will give a firmer feel to the mattress due to a heavier gauge of wire. Backcare springs are available in 6" single spring and Twin Spring options. The Backcare beds collection is a range of beds which are firmer, supporting the spine in its most natural position. Ideal for people wanting a firmer feel to their mattress.
During sleep your spine should be correctly aligned to help reduce back ache and other posture related problems. Some inferior mattresses may allow your spine to be bowed down if too soft or arched up if too hard. Backcare springs have been designed to eliminate this problem and therefore keeping your spine in the correct position for a more peaceful, undisturbed sleep.

Open coil beds

The Open coil beds collection is a range of traditionally made divan sets with a wide choice of options. Each mattress, in the 150cm size, contains 325 springs. Single layer spring system. Sumptuous quilted top surfaces to mattresses.

Twin spring beds

The Twin spring beds collection (double decker) is a range of beds which contain a double layer of springs for twice the comfort and support. Each mattress, in the 150cm size, contains 650 springs. (Two layers of 325 springs). Two sets of independently working springs. Special membrane seperates springs to stop them rubbing together. Double height mattress for extra comfort levels.

Visco-elastic beds

The Visco-elastic beds collection is a range of Polymer technology (High Resilient Foam) beds, which moulds to the contours of your body. The Visco-elastic mattress contains a full size spring unit under a memory foam layer. This combination gives the benefit of body moulding foam with a traditional sprung support system.

Myer's Visco-elastic range of mattresses use a 70mm layer of Memory Foam which is the deepest on the market. This extra deep layer is then used with one of Myer's Bonnell spring units (either single or double springs) which gives the ultimate comfort and support combination.

How it works

When you lie on this "elastic" material you can actually feel it working. What you can feel are the tiny cells shifting and re-organising their position to conform around your individual body contours. This shifting happens over a two minute period, using the heat from your body. When your body weight has been totally supported any hollow areas such as under the lower back cleverly fill in with the Visco Elastic foam, supporting every inch of your body.

Latex beds

This combination of springs and latex create a unique sleeping experience allowing the springs to support you while the latex absorbs pressure from shoulders and hips. The mattress is one-sided so no turning is required.

Caring for your new Myers Bed or Mattress


To avoid the risk of injury it is recommended that 2 people put the bed together.

Packing disposal

Remove all polythene packaging and dispose of carefully to avoid any possible injury to children.  Please remove any loose staples carefully with pliers and dispose of safely.


Attach castors by pushing them firmly into position by hand and give them a sharp tap with a mallet or piece of wood. Do not use a metal object as this may damage the castor or base Screw in the legs and make sure you check them regularly for tightness. If the divan base has drawers, the castors and headboard bolts can be found in the drawer. If not, they may be found in the base by removing the drawer.

If the divan base has no drawers, the castors and bolts are attached to the underside of the divan base. If they are missing, please contact your retailer.

Connecting bases

Connect the two halves of double divan bases using the plastic linking clips situated on the inside of the bases. The plastic clips can become slightly compressed during transit so you may need to carefully open the plastic clips by hand.

Attaching headboard

Decide which end of the divan you want to attach the headboard. To fit headboard bolts piece the cloth with a pair of scissors to accommodate the bolts. The approximate location of the holes is marked. Use your fingertips for precise location. Use the easy fix headboard bolts to clamp the headboard struts to the base. Check headboard bolts regularly for tightness.

Using suitable base

If you have purchased a mattress only do not use it on a base for which it is not designed. The best base for your Myer’s mattress is a Myer’s divan. Any base you use should provide correct ventilation and support. When used with a slatted base we recommend spacing of 25mm-63mm (1”-2 ½" approximately) between slats no wider than 63 mm (2 ½") approximately. Do not use solid plywood or hardwood base or place these materials under the mattress as condensation may build up through lack of ventilation causing deterioration on the underside of the mattress. The life of a mattress can be severely shortened by use of an old or unsuitable base.

Airing a new mattress

Allow the mattress to breath for four hours before fitting your bedding. This will allow any moisture, which may have been trapped by the packaging, to evaporate.  You will also notice that your new bed has an aroma of ‘newness’, this is very normal and will soon fade if aired regularly.

Caring for your new bed

Getting used to your bed

Your new bed may seem a little strange at first. The chances are that the springs and upholstery in your old bed were not what they used to be. Allow some time for your body to adjust to your new bed and for the fillings to settle.

Do not use chemical or detergent cleaners

These may adversely affect not only the covering material and stitching but also some of the cushioning materials used. In the event of soiling, the mattress may be lightly sponged with a weak solution of soap and water. Excessive wetting can damage the fabric.

Cleaning your mattress

We do not recommend vacuuming the mattress as this will lead to a disturbance of the fillings. Dust and fluff can be removed from the mattress by using a soft brush regularly.

Discolouration of your mattress

Discolouration may be caused by a chemical reaction that occurs during normal use. Chemicals are used in fire retardants and in the process of foam and latex production. If these chemicals come into contact with other chemicals such as detergents, deodorants or even perspiration, discolouration can occur. This is completely harmless and does not affect the performance of the mattress.

Do not bend or fold the mattress

This is likely to damage the spring unit and may invalidate the guarantee.

Do not overload the drawers

The drawers in the stowage divan have been designed to hold lightweight items only. To reduce the risk of damage and drawers jamming please avoid excessive weight and over filling as this may invalidate the guarantee.

Do not move the bed by the headboard

This may result in damage to the bed frame and headboard and therefore invalidate the guarantee.

  • Do not remove fire label
  • Do not sit on bed edge for long periods
  • Do not kneel on the bed
  • Do not stand on the bed

Turn the mattress regularly

Myer’s mattresses contain a variety of high quality filling layers. It is natural for these comfort layers to settle to the shape of your body, compacting in the same way as cushions on a sofa. This is quite normal and should not be a cause for concern. Turning your mattress is the equivalent of plumping up your cushions.

Mattresses should be turned every two weeks for the first six months and at monthly intervals thereafter. Single sided mattresses need only turning from head to foot.

Memory foam mattresses

These mattresses should be rotated from head to foot to even wear over the sleeping surface. Indentation of up to 20mm is completely normal.

During use the cells in the foam will fully open resulting in the memory foam reacting more quickly. It may therefore feel as if the material is getting softer, however the pressure relieving properties remain the same. 

Protect your mattress

No mattress is completely colourfast. We recommend you use a mattress protector to protect the mattress from accidental soiling from body moisture or other liquids. This also helps safeguard your guarantee.

Air the mattress regularly

In the morning turn back the bed clothes and leave the bed to air for 20 minutes to allow body moisture to evaporate. This helps prevent the possibility of body moisture reacting with fabric dyes.
